The Core Matters

Since our founding in 1930, Temple Beth Israel has been forming and transforming Jewish life in Melbourne, enriching the lives of our congregants through prayer, study and celebration. We are a community of meaning, dedicated to providing our members and friends with relevant and accessible pathways for Jewish engagement.
We believe in a living Judaism that respects our history while simultaneously engaging with the opportunities and challenges of the modern world.  TBI offers a wide range of programs, classes, services, lifecycle events, festivals, choirs, and clubs, and we welcome participation from members and friends, no matter of age or ability. We invite you to explore our website, and please join us for any of our services and activities.
